LANCASTER, Pa., March 14, 2019 – Saxton & Stump, is pleased to announce that Saxton & Stump attorneys Stephen J. Fleury and Richard L. Hackman will present on “Harassment in the Workplace and Conducting Internal Investigations” during the Pennsylvania Medical Group Management Association (MGMA)’s 2019 Healthcare Leaders Summit.
This year’s summit will be held April 10 – 12 at the Sheraton Hotel in King of Prussia, PA. The conference is held annually and is designed to help healthcare professionals advance their leadership skills through lectures from industry experts, networking and exchanging best practices with colleagues across Pennsylvania.
With the recent focus on the “#metoo” movement, the spotlight on workplace discrimination and harassment issues has gotten brighter. Steve and Rick will speak about why medical practices need to be vigilant in minimizing liability and protecting their employees from all forms of unlawful harassment. This presentation will provide a brief background on the legal issues involved, the measures practices can take to eliminate unlawful harassment and discrimination and the framework for conducting a harassment investigation.
